Compassionate Friends

Sunday, December 9th, 2018 is the  Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting 
Every year of the 2nd Sunday in December people are asked to light a candle at 7pm their local time and keep it lite for 1 hour. The hope is that the flame will go across the world, one candle at a time.

Each year I light a candle "for one hour to honor the memories of the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and grandchildren who left too soon." For our family especially this is our nephew, Tyler Joel Rudy, our dear friend Robert 'Ferguson', and Chris' twin (a son of our hearts) Steven Carpenter and for the families that have been left behind. We have to remember that we were lucky that these children had been in our lives even for such a short time.
